🐔 BLUE APRON LIME & DATE CHICKEN w FARRO
I made the whole kit and took ½ down to my neighbor Sandy who I cook for 3 days a week. It wasn’t a normal cooking for her day but I thought she might like it.

Meat in a can is always a bit questionable but this Clover Valley (Dollar General) Roast Beef is actually really tasty. The meat pieces are actual pieces – not ground up, indistinguishable bits and the gravy is good. Like any processed food like that, the sodium is high, but on a day where I am just hurting too much to do much more – this works for me.
